Kelvin Redvers grew up in Hay River, Northwest Territories. He majored in film production and graduated in June 2010 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, British Columbia, where he gained the proficiency for writing and directing his first short films Playing Cards (2007) and The Night the Robber Came (2009). His work covers both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal topics as well as First Nations community and aboriginal current affairs.
Redvers received his first nationwide Bravo! Canada broadcast credit at the age of 21, for The Making of a Haida Totem Pole. Redvers’ documentary television series for Knowledge Network titled Our First Voices (2012) proved Redvers as an up-and-coming filmmaker. Because of the success of Our First Voices, Redvers, at the age of 23, was hired in September 2010 by CTV as a producer of CTV-BC‘s First Story, a Vancouver-based television series and production company that detail Canadian Aboriginal concerns. Over the course of three seasons, as of 2014, Redvers had produced twelve episodes for First Story.
